    The version I learned has the Devil being the seam on the outboard side of the outboard deck plank.... if you are between this and the deep blue sea you are presumably standing on the rail!

    Q: Who were the old 18, and where did they come from?
    Not at all. The Delian League was Athen's hegemony set up to counter the Spartan Peloponnesian League to the south. It was sort of like Plato's Nato to the Spartan Warsaw Pact.

    The old 18 were the first eighteen cadets to attend RMC
    (Wurtele, Freer, Wise, Davis, Reed, Denison, Irving, Davis, DesBrisay, Rivers, Spelman, Fairbank, Perry, Cochrane, Dixon, Perley, Keefer and MacPherson)

    Another fun one: What happened to the top four candidates of the first class of Canada's Naval Academy of 1912?

    VAdm Harry DeWolf. He was the most decorated Naval Officer of WW2 and so named because of his aggressive tactics and maneuvers.

    I ought to have been more specific. HMS VICTORY (to which I was referring) is the flagship of the Home Fleet and the Second Sea Lord.

    The term "Scrap Iron Flotilla" refered to which group of ships in World War II? (Hint: think mediterianian sea) And what does the term refer to today?

    They were ships of the RAN during WW2, orginally build by the british in WW1. There were 5 ships in the V&W class, the Stuart (leader), Vampire, Vendetta, Voyager, Waterhen. Although old, they still proved them selves in the mediteratrian theather. They were incorperated into Destroyer Flotilla. Notably saw combat at the defense of Torbuk harbour.

    I cannot unfortuantly find anything as to what it refers today, so I wont post anyother question...

    Just checked this one... The current Flag Ship is the HMS Invincible while the Illustrious is undergoing a refit till this summer at which point the Illustrious will resume its role as Fleet Flagship. Both ship are of the Invincible class aircraft carriers (the third is the HMS Ark Royal).

    WRT "Scrap-Iron Flotilla" today. Take a look around the Royal Australian Navy website for information.

    And I tell no fibs, when I say that there is a Scrap-Iron Flotilla today!
